3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black in color with a small tan head. Roasted malts, vinous and plummy sweetness in aroma. Quit smooth mouthfeel. Sweet syrupy and bit of roasted bready malts in taste. Bit on the sweeter side. Coffee sweet vinous finish. Expected this to be a good nightcap, but the sweetness ruined it a bit.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with no head whatsoever. Smells like liquorice, fruits, cognac. Tastes follows with more dark fruits, liquorice, cognac barrel, roasted malts, faint black coffee, a bit of ash. The alcohol is present, although not bothersome. There is sweetness to it and bitterness, but both very low. There is almost no carbonation. I love it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
, from Alko web store. Medium, quite fresh and sweet aroma with dark fruits and some bourbon. Pitch black color with no head. Strong, balanced taste with sweet and slightly sour, dry nuances of dark fruits like plum. Bourbon, licorice and some sweetish, roasted malts and vanilla. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with slightly roasted malts and licorice. Medium/strong body with medium carbonation. Overall, considering imperial porter, this quite nails it: almost like imperial stout but with slight bitter, more edge feeling. Alcohol comes trough a bit too much.
